If you change or lose your smartphone or uninstall the app, the COVID certificates it contains will also be irrevocably lost. For this reason it’s recommended to also store your COVID certificates outside the app.
In the detailed view of the electronic COVID certificate in the COVID Certificate app you’ll find the Export function. You can use this to generate, save and print a PDF.
For a better idea of how this works, please check out the app screenshot.
Even though the certificate requirement in Switzerland has been lifted it’s recommended to keep your COVID certificates and the COVID Certificate app. This is because COVID certificates will still be important, especially for travel abroad.
